To listen to the blog post over reading it “What Is The Meaning Of Soulmates According To The Bible”
What is the meaning of soulmates according to the Bible? And are their even soulmates. I would like to expand on the idea of soulmates and what the Bible has to say about it. And you can watch my video below on what the Bible has to say about soulmates for additional information on what is the meaning of soulmates according to the Bible as well as examples of soul mates. And don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
But when we talk about what is the meaning of soulmates in a traditional sense. According to Psychology Today, A soulmate is the one person whose love is powerful enough to motivate you to meet your soul, to do the emotional work of self-discovery, of awakening.
Now, this may or may not be the definition that you were thinking because I think so many of us want to attach this unrealistic definition of soulmates like the person has to be born on your same birthday and be left-handed or whatever rhetoric we tell ourselves. But really true soulmates should be beyond that and it should be a person that is compatible and fitting to you. The Bible states in the amplified version (which you can click here to buy):
Now the Lord God said, “It is not good (beneficial) for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper [one who balances him—a counterpart who is] [a]suitable and complementary for him.” Genesis 2:18
This brings me to my first point:
First, A Soulmate Is Someone Who Brings Balance
When looking at the above Bible verse the words that I want to point out to what the meaning of what soulmates really is, is that one who balances you out and one that is suitable and complimentary to you. You can watch my video below when I break down what this Bible verse really means.
But overall when you determine if someone is suitable and complementary to you and to determine if they could be a proper soulmate to you then ask yourself?
- How does this person add value to my life?
- Are they encouraging?
- Do they fit into my life as they are or do I feel I need to change them to make my ideal partner?
- Is this someone who balances me out or do they pull me into extremes with my emotions?
Second, A Soulmate Is Your Flesh
I know that I said we were not going to get into some weird and crazy definition of soulmates but I want you to hear me out on this one. Because the idea of two people becoming one flesh is in the Bible. Multiple times in both the Old and New Testament:
- For this reason, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. Genesis 2:24
- Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh. Ephesians 5:31
And this is significant because as you identify your soulmate and even move toward marriage you have to ask yourself is this someone that I can become one flesh with? I have both a blog (which you can click here to read) and a video on soul ties (that you can watch below).
And one thing that I talked about was when you join your flesh with someone and if they have all these issues, baggage, drama, and whatever else going on then know that is what your flesh will attach to and that is what you are inviting in your life. We are not all perfect but remember the first tip that, your soulmate is someone who is suitable and complimentary to you. I can assure you that God would NOT want your soul mate AKA for you to join yourself to someone who has a bunch of problems and will only bring you down.
Third, Soulmates Adds To Your Purpose
I have a separate blog post on Esther that you can read here and also you can check out my video below on Esther. But when you apply Esther’s situation to what we have defined as soulmates. Esther and the king, their purpose together was to save the Jews from annihilation.
What we can learn from Esther is that a soulmate will actually add to your purpose and perhaps together you can do great things, that you would not be easily able to do with other people.
Last, Your Soulmate With Find You (Ruth)
I have a separate blog post on Ruth and also have a video on her as well to explain how she met Boaz. It was really a miracle in the sense that Ruth met Boaz. And I think this is a great story of how your soulmate will not miss you so don’t worry.
In my book for single women Fix It Jesus For Single Women Only (which you can click here to buy I said the following).
Ruth went from being a 40-something widow going into a strange land with no real prospect of even getting married again. Shortly after she landed in the field of Boaz and ended up marrying him. Tell me that was not God-ordained. Never think that God is not aware of where you are right now. God knows where you are, God knows where your future husband is, and He knows exactly how to get you two to meet. Therefore, sit back and relax. Meeting a man should never cause you anxiety. Keep doing you, going about your everyday life, and keep getting closer to God. Know that God can set you up with your king. As you can see, He has done it before.
What We Can Learn From Ruth. Is to just sit back, relax, and your soulmate will not miss you. If it is meant to be it will be. If you know someone who needs to read this post then share this post with them.
